Michael Baisden, On Getting Attention
To Marissa Alexander Case
Syndicated radio host and author says new show segment will focus on injustices
For weeks, the experienced radio personality and author joined a host of public figures calling for justice in the Trayvon Martin tragedy. On Wednesday, Baisden turned his attention to the “Stand Your Ground” case of Marissa Alexander.
Alexander found herself in a violent confrontation with her second husband, according to a blog pleading her case. A jury found her guilty of three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, for shooting a warning shot near her threatening husband and his two small children. She sits in jail, facing a 20-year prison sentence.
